It wasn’t too long ago that I saw the morning forecast for Rochester. Scrolling across my television screen was the prediction for “abundant sunshine”. Wow, what a great day to look forward to. And, I thought what a great word… abundant. Frankly, this is not something I say in regular conversation. Being an active user of Google, I sought to determine what that word was all about.
It means to be plentiful and overflowing and profuse and bountiful. I like it! It caused me to think about what might be abundant in my life. It was a pretty intriguing concept.
And, of course, I thought some about what might be abundant here at Webster Montessori School. We are now a few weeks into the school year. It has been my pleasure to meet so many new families and children and welcome back good friends. I am happy to report we are a community with many things in abundance.
I have seen abundant joy on the faces of the children. I have found abundant opportunity in each classroom. I discovered there is abundant learning available to each child. I appreciate abundant friendships being strengthened each day. I predict a year of abundance in our community.
Yes, I like this word. Join me in celebrating all we have!
